A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I'm Lu Sobredo, owner/publisher of Lu Travels Abroad Blog.
Recent update today, August 7, 2020: The pandemic in the U.S.A is the worst in the world with lack of a universal response from its leadership. If outside the house, please everyone wear a mask and keep a social distance as ordered by health experts. Paul Krugman, the celebrated economist wrote: Freedom in the U.S. has become synonymous with acting irresponsibly...As in people refusing to wear a mask or keep a social distance because they think it impinges on their freedom. But the rest of us have a god-given right to want to live and serve out our mission in on this earth. So get with the program or stay home.
I thought I was poised to start another career as an independent consultant in organizational development, travel the world to my hearts desire with or without my husband, our son or friends or at the very least accompany my adventurer husband on his next trips.
This website--a travel blog is a work in progress. It is my response to the difficulties, limitations and obstacles associated with a chronic illness. Determined not to let disability define me, I resolved to move forward with life. Moving forward includes travel, albeit with a cane and a strict regimen of medications and physical therapy. I'd hoped others in similar circumstances could do the same. This is my way of helping...
In this website, I am determined to:
1. Nudge others to travel while healthy. Exception: DO NOT TRAVEL DURING THE PANDEMIC.
3. Give glimpses of how others with limitation travel. My Blog also features articles and poems from contributing guest writers. A Special Edition blog about other human interest narratives may appear from time to time.
4. Give access to travel postings from celebrated travel writerson my travel Facebook Page www.facebook.com/lutravelsabroad.
There is so much more of the world to see. I have encountered travelers who move cautiously or in wheelchairs, walkers, walking cane, etc. I celebrate them all. But for now when the world is under threat from COVID-19, stay home. Use the down time to reconnect with yourself, an advice I also give myself.
I welcome one and all to engage with these pages, and join in my journey. My Facebook page has a "message" and a "comment" feature. Please use them.
